Alexa helps you reserve a ride with car2go’s carsharing service

by John_A

You can now order a car2go by commanding Alexa to find the nearest one and reserve it. The pay-by-time carsharing service is the latest automotive-related company to get a skill that integrates it with Amazon’s voice assistant, following BMW and Nissan.

The skill allows users to vocally ask about the nearest car2go vehicle, reserve it for up to 30 minutes or cancel it. While that limits your searches to whatever’s close by — instead of, say, cross-referencing for a slick Mercedes if you wanted something bigger than the company’s standard smart car — but hey, sometimes you don’t want to spend more effort snagging a car than barking at your smart speaker.
